Donncha O’Callaghan's interview with Roy Keane looks absolutely unmissable

The documentary airs tonight. Don't miss it.

Throughout his playing career, Roy Keane was the epitome of the phrase 'what you see, is what you get.'


Ferocious, talented, driven, inspirational, a far better passer than he's ever given credit for, and most importantly, a winner.

Eric Cantona may have been the spark that ignited the Fergie revolution, but Keane's fire is what drove United during an extraordinary period of dominance in English football.

However, Keane's refusal to accept anything less than 100% from those around him ultimately proved to be his undoing because we all remember that infamous interview that he gave to MUTV after United's defeat to Middlesbrough.

As the former Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest, and Celtic man writes in his book, he didn't stick around and get too emotional. Life goes on.


"Let me cry in my car for two minutes. If it benefited Manchester United, so be it. When the paperwork had finally been sorted and I'd given back the car – this was three months after the last meeting, so I got an extra three months out of it: I drove some f****** miles in that car – every little victory is vital," he wrote.

Since hanging up his boots after his time at Parkhead, the Irish legend has had managerial stints at Sunderland and Ipswich Town, along with coaching roles at Aston Villa and the Irish national team.

Keane is always a fascinating person to listen to and Virgin Media One's new documentary entitled Game Over: True Lives is bound to be an interesting watch for anyone that's drawn to the Irish icon.

Presented by ex-Ireland and Munster legend Donncha O’Callaghan, the documentary will look at how sportspeople deal with life after their playing careers.


Even when he's talking about something as simple as taking out the bin, there's still a fire and intensity to Keane that's unparalleled.

Throughout the feature, Keane talks about his daily gym routine, his time at Sunderland, and finding new passions in life.

Donnacha O'Callaghan: Game Over - True Lives airs tonight at 22:30pm on Virgin Media One.
